My Daily Devotion – My Quiet Time With God

Posted by Men of Redemption on November 30, 2017

A GOOD SERVANT OF JESUS CHRIST Image result for a good servant of god

Today’s Reading: 1 Timothy 4:1-11 . . . .

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed. But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach.

Today, I Will Trust God To . . . .

Posted by Men of Redemption on August 10, 2017

 

 

.  .  .  TO HELP ME BECOME LIFE GIVING BY THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK.

For this day, Lord God, I pray and ask that you heavenly Father strengthen me to speak with the wisdom and grace of your Word so that others will see You O God in me and not myself; that encouragement and edification would be received and understood by those whom I speak them to. Instill in me Lord God, a peaceful and contrite spirit, where love, joy, longsuffering and kindness rests upon the walls of my heart; Teach Heavenly Father how to know humility, to love one another as you have loved and continue to love me. Let your peace reign within me that what comes out of me will bring hope and lead them to you O God.

“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.”  –  Proverbs 18:4

Recovery Tip For This Week!

Posted by Men of Redemption on November 28, 2016

Road_RecoveryThis week’s tip . . .

 

 

Be Humble in All Your Victories in Recovery

Well, you’ve been in recovery for a while now and things are moving forward just you prayed to God for. You have consistent sobriety; you’re spending daily, quality time with the Lord in prayer and reading His Word; your accountability structure is in place and active with full support; you’re learning and growing in the things of God as you have been applying His principles and guidelines to your life. All is well with your recovery structure. Now the hardest thing to do as you continue to move forward-KEEPING IT THAT WAY!

So many times we can get so excited about our efforts in all we do in recovery, and rightfully so, because it’s hard and you want to feel good about it. But the one thing that I discovered early on in my recovery is that the enemy of our souls is not going to sit back and watch us have victory over his efforts to bring us down that easily. That’s why I’ve grown to humble myself in my recovery by being thankful and honoring God for all that He has strengthened me to go through and to accomplish. Remember, everything we have done in recovery is not by our own doing. There had to be a humbling experience, exposure to some of us, and that wasn’t a very pretty thing for many of us. It was down-right embarrassing!

But God has a way of humbling us before Him, getting our attention because He loves us that much. In doing so, I’ve learned, and still learn to this day, to keep things in perspective by giving God honor and praise for bringing to this point in my life because I realized where I’d be if I had continued in my mess. So I thank God daily. I pray for His goodness and mercy to surround me always as He gives me life to move forward. It wasn’t anything that I did or done, it was His grace that He showered me with to see Him as my Savior and Lord to bring me out of what I was going through. So every day that God gives me life, I’m thankful and blessed to receive healing and grace to continue in my recovery and be consistent in all my efforts. I’m grateful, I’m thankful, and I give Him the glory for everything He has done, is doing and will continue to do as I faithfully continue to submit myself to His authority and guidance.

Recovery Tip For This Week!

Posted by Men of Redemption on July 11, 2016

Tip for this week . . . .  

 

Take it One Day at a Time

Okay, you’re doing really well in your recovery. You’re excited about the leaps and bounds you’ve taken, and recovery is getting easier and easier as you put more into it. That sounds good, and is pleasing to the ears. But realize one thing – on relapse can set you back mentally, emotionally and spiritually all the way back to your first day in recovery. So to keep our recovery in perspective, take recovery one at a time. Yeah, we can celebrate the daily victories and how far we’ve come. But let’s not rest on those laurels. Recovery is a process that has no limitations because there is no end. We’ll never arrive in true freedom until Christ returns, then there’s true freedom. What we want to do commit ourselves to maintaining a lifestyle of secured purity living where Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do. His Holy Spirit will give us direction, guidance and peace to remain focused on our recovery without overdoing it in celebration and excitement. At the end of each day, thank God for all the victories He allowed you to overcome, and praise Him for His guidance through it all. Then pray and ask Him to guide you and establish your steps for the next day should we be blessed to see it. This will keep our hearts, minds and focus on successful recovery and not trying to get to the end of it all. Jesus is coming, rest in that.

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”  –  JAMES  4:10

My Daily Devotion

Posted by Men of Redemption on July 7, 2016

Devotions“Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”  –   1  PETER  5:5-11   

Today’s Point of Focus:

Resist temptation, and allow humility to a character trait of who we truly are in Christ our Savior.

An Encouraging Quote

Posted by Men of Redemption on February 24, 2016

charles spurgeon

 

God comes into our heart—He finds it full—He begins to break our comforts and make it empty; then there is more room for grace. The humbler a man lies, the more comfort he will always have because he will be more fitted to receive it.” 

–   Charles H. Spurgeon, on Humility.

THE CHARACTER OF THE NEW MAN Devotional

“Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”   –   COLOSSIANS   3:12-17
